My wife and I attended the Advances in Rhinoplasty international meeting held in Chicago from May 4-7, brilliantly organized by Dr. Sam Most, Dr. Peter Adamson, and Dr. Oren Friedman. This was a meeting of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgeons with a faculty of over fifty surgeons that included several plastic and reconstructive surgeons. I had seven obligations, including a thirty minute invited lecture. I presented my airway research, my research on childhood trauma, and my surgical techniques and philosophy in some detail. I am pleased to have had the honor of participating with this cordial, gracious, and surgically excellent group, where the response to my ideas was gratifyingly received. It was a true pleasure to be with all of them.
